Ragnar Kjartansson & Tine Colstrup

In the first episode of our new CHART Talks podcast, we are happy to share a live recording of a talk between contemporary artist Ragnar Kjartansson and Tine Colstrup, Curator at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, where Kjartansson’s work was the subject of a large-scale retrospective exhibition this summer.

Throughout the conversation, Kjartansson reflects on previous works that engage with Danish-Icelandic colonial history, public attacks on the painting 'Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan' by Ilya Repin, and the music of George Jones. Reflecting on global power dynamics and ideas of privelege and victimhood, the discussion was truly a highlight from this year's CHART.
